Houstonian Club’s Big Renovation Makes Fitness Fun for the Whole Family
There are few things more satisfying than a newly remodeled gym, but a gym with great ways to keep kids active is a strong contender.
After completing his first lap of a $23.5 million renovation and the expansion of the club by 175,000 square feet, The Houstonian Club has moved into its second phase for children, with new equipment, programs and personnel.
The CDC recommends that children ages 6 to 17 get an hour of exercise a day, but less than a quarter actually do. It’s hard to hit that metric if that’s the only goal, but getting kids moving can be as simple as connecting them to activities that really resonate.
At the Houstonian Club, they can get involved in mind-body balancing activities as diverse as swimming lessons, racquet sports, basketball, rock climbing, and more.
While most children will likely be happiest exercising through play, those interested in the science of exercise can learn in the fitness center, with certified youth trainers and even personal trainers to help create personalized programs for physical and emotional goals.
It could be an engaging bonus while a parent isn’t swimming, a huge head start in team sports with slightly too thin coaches, or even just a solid foundation for a brighter future. confident where exercise is an internalized priority, rather than a daunting obligation.
Sometimes it’s just about keeping the kids busy and safe while the parents enjoy the campus on their own. Babies six weeks old up to 12 year olds are welcome in the supervised childcare program, with separate age-appropriate areas to keep everyone engaged.
Kids 5 and under can hang out in The Bungalow, divided into baby, toddler, and kids sections, next to The Houstonian Hideout, which opens in May for all other kids.
Check-in to these areas includes stroller parking and high visibility throughout the space, thanks to windows all around. And while these handy features are exciting for parents, another may inspire envy: a personalized Ninja Warrior obstacle course and bouldering wall.
On a more engaged scale that still makes summer much easier for adults with places to be, there are three types of camps for ages 3 to 15: day camps, water camps, and racquet sports ( which include tennis, paddleball and pickleball). ).
An outdoor playground and family-friendly events like the recent Spring Fling — complete with bouncy houses, train rides, temporary tattoos, and DJ sets — make the Houstonian Club a fun all-day spot, with new engaging programs starting all the time.
The Houstonian Club, one of 20 Platinum Sports Clubs nationwide and among the top 5% of all private clubs, is recognized for its commitment to providing the finest amenities in Houston.
Enrolling the family by the end of May will also save money, as the Family Membership membership fee increases by $3,000 on June 1.
